Rock & Roll isn’t just a genre of music—it`s a lifestyle! What better way to experience the rock way of life than up close with legendary bands? The Rock and Roll Society of Edmonton is hosting the 6th annual Edmonton Rock Music Festival on August 12 and 13. Dance & belt out your favourite tunes at the Hawrelak Park Amphitheatre with the iconic Randy Bachman, Kim Mitchell, Lou Gramm of Foreigner, David Wilcox, 54-40, Nick Gilder & Sweeney Todd, The Kirby Sewell Band (recent winner of a fistful of Maple Blues Awards), Edmonton’s own Rend, and The Mad Dog’s Experience – A Tribute to Joe Cocker.
It’s much more than a great live-music party. The Fest raises funds supporting the Centre for Arts & Music (CAM). CAM provides struggling youth with an after-school music education program in which mentors teach students to write music, learn instruments, play in a band and ultimately produce their own concerts, including playing to a crowd of thousands at the Festival. Support Edmonton’s next generation of rockers while pumping your fist in the air at the Edmonton Rock Music Fest!
